Dynamics .NET Key Features

Visual Studio Integration

With full Visual Studio 2019 and Visual Studio 2022 integration, you can quickly and easily connect to your Dynamics 365 data sources. Connect to Dynamics through the Server Explorer, without writing a single line of C# code, and then drag tables on the dataset designer, and connect data-aware controls like grids, charts and report designers.

Data Features

ADO.NET and Entity Framework Core Support

Connect to Dynamics 365 Sales data using standard ADO.NET objects and Entity Framework Core. The data connector uses ADO.NET objects to make it easy to set up a connection. 

OpenAuth Authentication Support

The Dynamics 365 data connector library supports the industry standard authentication protocol, OpenAuth 2.0, to help you protect your data through a secure connection.

SQL and LINQ Query Support

Query against Dynamics 365 Sales data using most standard SQL syntax including joins queries, functions, and summaries. It also has in-built support for LINQ queries for native .NET data queries.

Batch CRUD Operations

The data connectors support CRUD operations such as inserting, updating and deleting data through Command and DataAdapter objects. You can further optimize network performance by performing batch updates.

Fast Cache with Incremental Updates

With built-in caching you can improve performance by using a local cache database for repeat operations. It also supports incremental updates so that only new or modified records get synced to the cache.

Scaffolding

With scaffolding support, the Dynamics 365 data connector library can generate model classes and a database context for Entity Framework Core. The scaffolding command can be run from Visual Studio.

Integrate Dynamics Data to .NET

While the Dynamics 365 connector focuses primarily on the connecting and querying, you can use it with other powerful .NET components to do a lot more.

  • Integrate Dynamics with DataCollection to provide filtering, grouping, data virtualization to your data-aware controls.
  • Import data from Dynamics to DataEngine to analyze massive amounts of data in fractions of a second.
  • Connect to pivot grids & charts, such as FlexPivot, to visually analyze data from the CRM.
